Dental implants are inserted into the jawbone where they serve as a replacement for a lost tooth’s root. Once placed, implants undergo a process known as osseointegration during which osteoblasts and connective tissue secure them into the bone, making them a permanent part of the jaw. However, the restorations placed on top of implants may not last for a lifetime.
Fairfax station implant dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban would be happy to address any questions you may have about the durability of this tooth replacement option. Please call us at 703-349-4277 to schedule your consultation today.
Barring trauma or progressive gum disease, your dental implants should last for a lifetime. Restorations including dental crowns and implant supported dentures may eventually need to be replaced. Our implant dentist utilizes the highest quality restorations to help ensure lasting results, but it is not possible to guarantee that even these durable and attractive options can last forever. During your initial consultation Dr. Marzban can discuss the best ways to care for your restorations to help them last for years to come.
